Flying and Risk

I am still opposed to the scanners and "patdowns" as being intrusive and excessive, but from what I have read, one is exposed to vastly more radiation in the act of flying at 30,000 feet for lengthy periods of time than one is for a few seconds in a scanner. Many, many more times of radiation hits you while in flight, so if radiation exposure is your fear, you'd best take the train or drive.
